French Restaurants in Oxford
1. The Perch French restaurant in Oxford Binsey Ln - OX2
In a “wonderful setting in the tiny hamlet of Binsey” (“perfectly placed for a riverside walk”), a “justifiably popular” pub whose “delicious” cooking “draws North Oxford out to the country”. “Eat by the open fire” or in the “ingenious” conservatory in winter, and profit from the “delightful” garden come summer. Veggie and Vegan options are particularly good here.
2. Brasserie Blanc French restaurant in Oxford 71-72 Walton St - OX2
“Reliable and very reasonable value for the main part” – fans of Raymond Blanc’s original city-centre brasserie say it’s “underrated compared to other chains in Oxford”. Even these supporters tend to be fairly measured in their praise, but in this culinary “wasteland” of a city it’s a venue that’s worth remembering especially for “the splendid breakfast and first class Sunday lunch”.
3. Pierre Victoire French restaurant in Oxford Little Clarendon St - OX1
“One of the few survivors from a nineties chain” – this “always-busting city-centre French Restaurant” delivers “such a good formula of a type that’s increasingly hard to find” (and is one of the most commented-on venues in town as a result). Service is “very rapid” but “friendly” and offers “simple”, “typical bistro fare” from a “wide range of classic dishes” that may be a tad “unexceptional”, but which come at “amazingly cheap prices (including the wine)”.
4. Café Rouge French restaurant in Oxford 11 Little Clarendon St - OX1
2015 Review: “Best avoided unless the children really won’t wait” – these “fake French bistros” have their fans as a breakfast destination, but other meals are sometimes “so badly prepared and served” as to be simply “dire”.
